Pep Admits Kroos Could Leave Bayern, Man United Fans Get Super Excited
The other day those lads over at The Mirror are reporting that Man United are preparing a 'stunning' £25million bid for Toni Kroos - you know, the bloke who's easily one of the best players in the world in his position and definitely won't be going anywhere.

UPDATE UPDATED: Pep Guardiola told reporters that Kroos 'could be allowed to leave' Bayern. This couldn't happen... Could it?
"[Kroos] is an important player, but things can move fast in football. Here today, gone tomorrow" said handsome slap-head Pep after the midfielder sulked after being subbed...
